Friday Foodspiration: Bok Choy Salad

IMG_6851.jpg

Bok Choy - a type of Asian cabbage - has never gotten much love in my kitchen until recently.

After learning it’s such a powerful antioxidant, lowers inflammation, and improves digestion I’ve been looking for reasons to add it to my weekly grocery list. . . .and that’s how I came up with this Boy Choy Salad!

Like most greens, the baby version is less bitter and tough. For this reason, I used baby bok choy in the recipe where it is eaten raw. When cooked in a stir-fry, the regular version is fine. Both are packed with calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, folic acid, and vitamin B6.

Ingredients:

Salad

  • 4-5 bulbs Baby Bok Choy, washed and chopped
  • 2 cups Shredded Carrots
  • 1 cup Cucumber, chopped
  • 4 Scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Sliced Almonds, toasted

Dressing

  • 2 tbs Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbs Coconut Aminos
  • 2 tbs Swerve Sweetener
  • 1 tbs Fresh Ginger, zested
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tbs Seseame Seeds, toasted

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine the salad ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. 
  3. Add dressing to the salad and toss until combined.  Optional - top with extra sesame seeds, almonds, or scallions.
